Could someone please help identify these birds seen along The Chicotin Highway 20.

They include a Warbler and hummingbirds and a duck with a punk haircut that I cannot recognize in what is probably it's breeding colours. Thank you.

The first bird is a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, and it seems to be the Audubon's form.

The second bird is not a duck but a Horned Grebe, in breeding plumage. In the lower mainland I've only seen them in black-and-white winter plumage.

As for the last photo I think those are female Rufous Hummingbirds.

Thanks for replying. I've never seen a Grebe in that plumage and wasn't sure about the Hummingbirds.
